Jim Gearhart’s Hysterical Mouse Ball Segment
Many of you have asked for this familiar audio piece it and now it is finally online!
Jim's not quite sure how this got to be a Christmas piece but it always seems to come out around the holidays. When this first aired, Jim was given copy to read and he thought what he was reading had to be an internet scam because what he was reading just couldn't be real.
The commercial was written at a time when computers were less prevalent and technicians were out traveling to fix computers, more so than conducting assistance over the phone like they do today. The advertisement was supposed to be for a track ball replacement in a computer mouse but someone apparently didn't re-read what they wrote because if they did, it may have been re-written.
